Changes to Welsh Building Regulations
There are changes to the Welsh Part B (fire safety) on the 30th April 2014 for mandatory sprinkler protection to care homes, children’s residential homes, hospices, boarding houses, halls of residence’s and hostels. This move will result in Wales being the first country in the world to have mandatory requirements for sprinkler protection to these types of residential buildings.
There are also changes to the Welsh Part L (Conservation of fuel and power) coming out on the 31st July 2014 to include for a further C02 reduction of 8% for new dwellings and 20% for non-dwellings for which will have a dramatic effect on building designs and costs.
All changes will be covered in the Construction Study Centre Building regulations course in Cardiff on the 25th June 2014, we look forward to seeing you there.View Details
